This one is hard! Things that are ugly-beautiful are that way for a reason: they are scarred, painful, awkward, uncomfortable. They can be dirty, messy, strained. They can just be too real.
1. I am thankful for my body, because it is flawed and it is lovely at the same time. It sometimes causes me mental anguish, but it is what I am living in for the rest of my life, and I will treat it with the respect and the love that it deserves. God took great pains to design my body. God loves that my eyes squint up when I smile. He loves that I have a slightly obnoxious laugh. He loves that my legs are like tree trunks. He wouldn’t have made me any other way.
2. I am thankful that my attempts at art and Pinterest crafts are not anything like the pictures. They are unique because I don’t really know how to make them the right way. They are beautiful because they aren’t perfect.
3. I am thankful that my heart is not always in the right place, but I am loved just the same. It can be an ugly mess, full of selfishness and sin. But it was made by a loving Father, so it is beautiful just the same.
